The South South Voice, a pressure group in the South South geo-political zone of Nigeria threatened chaos if the ‘Hausa/Yoruba conspiracy is not addressed before the May 29 handover date. The group alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan was cheated, intimidated, and coaxed into conceding defeat at the concluded March 28 presidential polls which stopped the President’s second term ambition.

In a letter, made available to Vanguard Nigeria, addressed to President Jonathan  and signed by the National Coordinators, Mr. Victor Tamarapreye and Michael Akpodore, it alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan was manipulated out of the contest therefore it will be unjust to hand over power to Gen.Muhammadu Buhari “who is a beneficiary of the Hausa/Yoruba conspiracy”.

The letter reads:

“We the under signed for and on behalf of numerous concerned people of the South South geo-political region of Nigeria, wish to inform you that, we are not happy with the way and manner the election was conducted and it will be wrong to hand over power to the wrong person.

“The election was rigged massively to favour Gen.Buhari and we will not accept such result. Even though we are heading to court but we want to warn first so that Nigerians will understand where the trouble is coming from when it commences.

“Secondly, You Mr President was coaxed and intimidated to accept the outcome of the election by the International Community and the so called peace makers Committee in Nigeria.

“There was a gang-up against you from the Northern part of Nigeria irrespective of party line, as well as the issue of under-age voters which we all saw in several northern states. You have performed more than any Nigerian  president has ever produced in your first term in office.”
